at virginia tech, the most significant crime in the history of the state, and i had just landed in japan on a trade mission, and i got on a plane and flew back, and i spent time dealing with the breeding members of that community, and i said we would put in place a panel of people that have no connection to virginia tech, and we will have them turn it upside down so we can minimize the chance that anything like that will ever happen again. we can't prevent it but question minimize that chance. things that might have happened at ni college campus. but it required us to make significant changes to the health law, changes to campus security. there are things that went wrong. we dug into them. we found them and we fixed them to the best of our. -- our ability. >> as you take a minute, is this a broader issue with the obama's response to arab spring? >> in some regards yes. let me first take a moment and commend tim as i have before in his leadership on after -- after the tragedy on april 16th at virginia tech. as we learned from what we wrong and improved the safety of our colleges. tim, i c
to virginia, the state that could be the must-win in november. joining us now, chris cillizza, managing editor of post politics.com and peter alexander following the romney campaign. welcome to both. chris, first of all, how important is virginia? they've gone, both from ohio to virginia. they seem to be tag teaming it, the two weekends. >> reporter: yeah, i would say, draa, we've talked about this, the visits, where they spend their time is so carefully calibrated to spend it in media markets and states that they absolutely need. ohio, mitt romney, i think needs and is behind. virginia, i think mitt romney mitt romney needs and is behind. one thing to remember about virginia a state, before barack obama won in 2008 everybody the last democratic presidential candidate come win it was lyndon johnson in 1964. it's remarkable that we're talking about virginia in the terms that we are. there's been a big demographic shift with northern virginia a big democratic population. it is remarkable, it's a place where barack obama deserves credit for expanding what was the democratic map in the early 2000s
science professor in virginia. thank you so much for your time. we have romney and obama in virginia right now. we have this segment called purple rain for a rain. it's solidly purple, and this is an interesting race for many reasons in virginia. what are you watching? >> the problem in virginia for the romney campaign is they're on the defensive on all the issues, on the economy, women's issues, national security, all of issues that are important they're on the defensive right now. they don't have an issue opening to press the obama campaign on in virginia. they're behind on the economy, which was supposed to be president obama's weakness. so i think they're really in trouble in virginia. we've seen a slip on the part of the romney campaign since the convention, so whatever that convention bounces, it turned into a convention slide in virginia. we have a series of polls out now that show the gap widening between obama and romney. i think the romney campaign needs to find an opening, a gap to shoot in virginia on that issue. they need to press that gap. >> it's interesting you say that the
are going up. in virginia, the key to virginia for romney would be to widen the margin they would get. mccain carried them by over 30 points. so did romney. it is basically about the same margin as mccain got in 2008. we see this burgeoning white college graduate group that obama lost by about 11. in 2008. the is basically about even. it makes it difficult for romney to put together a coalition that could put this. colorado has been closed. obama looks like he has a three or four. lead. -- thre or four point lead. it does not appear that romney is able to turn that demographic in his favor. he is not doing much better according to the polls i have seen. he has made some progress outside the margin. he is not making nearly enough progress to take the state. if you break it down to a graphically comment the denver metro area is about half of the state. the poster child for demographic change in the united states and how it can shift is the great state of nevada. obama is running ahead of the not as far as he did in 2008. this is a little cut off here. you can see an incredible increase

three states in the new south, north carolina, virginia and florida. the six days in the midwest rust belt area are much more heavily white than these other swing states. they are much more slowly changing than the states, for example, in the new south which have a much higher level of minority voters and are changing rapidly. and, of course, the states in the southwest with a minority population particularly among hispanics is shooting up very rapidly and the states have a much more higher proportion of minority voters that are favorable to barack obama. with that in mind let's look at some of the particular swing states that are in play at this point. maybe more so than any other state, ohio seems to be the fulcrum of this election, that it's a state that is very accessible to mitt romney, a state of that obama could hold him and he holds all six of the states in the rust belt midwest area combined with only four electoral states short of victory. so critical for the romney strategy to hold a state of ohio. that's not happening at this point. at this point obama is probably up to ab
versus virginia, calling for women to enter the military institute any also wrote a landmark case concluding that the family would apply to state employers. when you think about the overall evolution of the doctrine and you look at his evolution, how do you explain it? >> let me go back to the case he first mentioned. it was my last argument before the court. it was in the fall of 1978. it was a case about putting women on juries. it is not all that long ago that many states either did not put women on juries at all or allow them to sign up if they wanted to serve or had an opt-out system this case was of the latter kind, it was from the state of missouri. the court in kansas city would send out notices for jury duty and the notice would say if you are a woman, you are not required to serve. if you don't wish to serve, check here. if no card was returned, the clerk would assume that the woman did not want to serve. this was at a time when most states had changed. the richest a few holdouts, tennessee, missouri -- there were just a few holdouts, tennessee, missouri. i had a preciou

in the midwest area, ohio, michigan, and ohio, states in the southwest, colorado, new mexico and nevada. virginia and florida in the south. all of the states are pretty different. the six states in the midwest are much more heavy and have a slow level of demographic change and they are more bechler changing slowly. that is favorable in showing preference for barack obama could with that in mind, let's look at some of the particular swing states that are in play. more than any other state, perhaps ohio is one of the pogroms. a state that was believed to be for mitt romney, but if obama holds all six electoral votes, he is only four electoral votes short of victory. critical romney strategy in the state of ohio. that is not happening at this point. at this point, some of the data on the bottom, you see that the were served with the white working class and he lost by 10 points in 2008. his hope was that he could expend that much a part of it. that is really what romney strategy is. romney is not anywhere close to driving up that margin. he is doing no better at all for white college graduates. that
events in virginia but they can't wait for just the debates. i think conservatives want to see not just big events in terms of big ideas but big events that grab the nation's attention. the romney campaign is frustrated because they say all the press asks them about is process but that's par for the course and true in every campaign i've ever covered, the press will talk about process particularly polls. mitt romney, conservatives are waiting for him to be big in events, big in message, big in personality. it seems like right now the campaign is waiting for him to do that in the debates. >> mark, you know why they focus on process, because there's not substance to -- you know, it's funny, in 1988 facing a more hostile press george h.w. bush never once whined about process. you know why? because james baker told the press what they were going to be following. and he told the candidate what he was going to be doing. and every week the candidate did it. the message was unbelievable. but again, going on with charles krauthammer, for six months mitt has been matching obama small ball for sma

. he's leading romney 49% to 44% in florida. and virginia. and those polls were conducted sunday through tuesday before romney's missteps and the embassy attack thing that he goofed. so there are also new numbers for two other swing states in colorado, a keating research on-site poll put the president at 49% and romney at 44% and that's also among likely voters. and then in new hampshire the wmur granite state poll shows president obama leading mitt romney 45% to 44%. all of them, 5% or more lead shown by the president. the numbers do not lie. now, if you add all of those data polling points together, it would mean an electoral college landslide for the president. okay. hit the pause button. that doesn't mean it's a done deal for sure. as we learned over the last 48 hours, a lot can happen over the next 54 days. but polling prognosticators are making it clear that romney is staring at very long odds and a very steep climb. "the new york times"' own election forecaster nate silver breaks it down like this.
the battleground scoreboard. first to virginia where a new york times/cbs/quinnipiac poll finds president obama with a four-point lead over mitt romney. about the same there, 50/46. in wisconsin, same poll shows the president leading by six, 51/45. that's important given paul ryan is on the ticket. and in colorado, obama with a small lead. always tricky now that state. why is colorado tricky? 47/48. that close. >>> welcome back to "hardball." the floodgates have opened. criticism of the romney campaign by his fellow republicans is growing louder and fiercer since romney's caught-on-tape comments on that 47% came to light monday. here was republican strategist mark mckinnon this morning. >> what we're seeing is an increasing problem of him being able to connect with voters in a sense that he understands and shares their values and concerns. and that gap's widening. >> uber conservative charles krautheimer, who has defended romney in the past, ripped into his comments last night on fox. let's take a look. >> he said these are people who consider themselves victims. now, that's not a very smart th
? >> not according to your rules. i like more than less, but going on. >> governor allen, virginia voters are divided on whether they want the affordable care act to stay or go because it's not completely ruled out and because it's so complex. do you want to completely get rid of the law as a stands and start over on health care reform from strach or favor -- scratch or favor another method? >> i'll use the first part to rebut comments tim made. tim talked about $16,000 of debt. now it's the spending in washington has gone up to $54,000 per second in spending. tim contribute sideses tax -- criticizes tax cuts past, but they created 7 million jobs after the devastating attacks on this country in 9/11. the ideas of who is fiscally responsible and who creates the most jobs k i think our approach will clearly improve job opportunities. on the health care tax law. that's also an impediment to jobs. i heard from so many small business owners, community hospitals that this is so harmful to them. small businesses don't want to get over 50 employees. some make their employees part time, making it tougher for
only the economy as the top voting issue in the swing states of florida, ohio, and virginia. and among voters who say medicare is extremely important to their vote, obama swamps romney by, get this, 13 points. when voters in those states were asked a similar question, whom they trusted to deal with the medicare program, obama again trumps romney in all the polls. in ohio obama leads romney on medicare by 19. in florida, 15. in virginia, 13. other polls have shown president obama's advantage on medicare has grown significantly since ryan joined the ticket. so let's go back to this again, trying to figure this out. he bought into a guy who was known primarily for this voucher plan, getting rid of medicare as we know it. basically go to a doctor and the bills are paid by medicare. you can't beat a system like that, joy-ann, i don't think on this planet earth and have something paid for when you go to do it. there's nothing like it. >> and -- >> why would anybody want to change it? nobody would want to change it. >> chris, i think what's worse than that is they tried to be too cute with it
, 106 electoral votes up for grabs. president obama up three states. florida 49, 44. virginia 50, 43. if that's true, and that holds, then the governor loses, correct? >> you know,. we have got more polls than you can ever imagine. do you know how many national polls and daily tracking polls have been in the last 80 days? 83. if you imagine the national polls how many state polls we have h we have got to be careful about them. first of all be careful about reading too much into the polls. in mid september of 1980, ronald reagan was trailing jimmy carter 44 to 40 despite double digit inflation, double digit unemployment and double digit interest rates. by mid october reagan had dropped 1 point to 39 and carter had risen three points to 47. yet, as we all know it turned out a big blow out. >> bill: let me get this straight. in 1980, in the middle of october, just three weeks before the vote, carter was up 47-39 over reagan? >> right. now, part of this is, yeah, and the gallup. >> bill: that's amazing. >> we forget about it now. i remember at the time people -- i was the director of the

in stafford, virginia, on our republican line. kevin, good morning. you're first up. what do you think about media coverage of campaign 2012? caller: oh, it's biased. it totally leans against the republicans. one example is every day in "the washington post," whenever there is a picture printed of barack obama or mitt romney, the picture of barack obama always has that beautiful barack obama smile on it. it's the best picture they could find of barack. and then right below it, there will be a picture of mitt romney with a sneer and he's very angry, like he's yelling at a crowd. but when, in fact, there's thousands of pictures available of mitt romney with a beautiful smile on his face and really looking positive and happy. they refuse to print those pictures. for people who don't read but just look at pictures -- there's a lot of people like that. that's one thing that the mainstream media in print, in newspapers, the "new york times," "washington post," they do it all the time. they used to find every glowing picture possible of hillary clinton that they could find. host: all right, kevin,
